Notes:

Sorry, previous post failed to upload desired photo. This is the flower.
My sister gave this to mom several years ago and I have always wondered what it is. Non-invasive, multiples in the same clump. I separated one and came up with 25 separate plants. The flowers are on an individual stalk. I really like it but have no idea what it is.

    I transplanted in the spring of last year. When the flowers dried up and fell, I spread the seeds in my flower bed and I have them all over. They are pretty hardy. If you keep them watered when you plant them they should do well. I do mulch my beds with about 4 inches of mini-bark. Weeds are almost never and the moisture seems to hold well for the roots.
